Acrobats jumped of dizzyingly high trapezes, tight-rope walkers amazed the crowd by pulling off hundreds of impossible stunts and clowns were fooling around! Their jokes never got old. The audience rocked and swayed with laughter. This was a circus nobody wanted to miss. Outside the circus, dark clouds blotted out the sun. A mother and child were panicking. As the weather changed, they went to take shelter under a bus stop, but inside the circus all was merry and warm.Lightning struck the roof and a great rip was formed. Rain poured in! Flames danced along the thin material.
